Planting

The MX255 is used to pull the Kinze 3650 bulk fill planter.  The tractor is outfitted with a Trimble Autopilot system which runs on RTK.  This system is used to ensure that the planter is always following the nutrient rich band created with the strip-till machine.  The planter has after market Rawson drives installed in order to vary planting rates across different soil types.  All fields are planted based on prescriptions that we have written to maximize yields and minimize risk.
